This is a special issue addressing the struggle over the democratization of essential public services in Spain, whereby widespread mobilizations to oppose further privatizations of water services and to bring back under public control those systems that had been privatized have been taking place over the last decade. It aims to be a contribution to the international debate, fostering further exchange of knowledge and experience on this urgent matter. The issue has 6 articles, authored by academics, postgraduate students, practitioners, municipal officers, among other, all of them involved in diverse ways with the social organizations participating in the campaigns.
